I am continuing to take a limited number of cases. Although I retired in 2010, the need for strong advocates is greater than the need for retired attorneys. I am a believer that mediation is the better option, but there are cases in which mediation may be prohibited (cases involving domestic violence or criminal acts) and cases in which mediation has failed. Those cases are almost certainly going to trial, and having an experienced attorney is the most cost efficient and timely approach to a quick resolution.
My hourly rate for litigated cases is $150.00 per hour. While I know this is below the community average, I feel it is important to stay as affordable as possible.
Litigation is all consuming and tiring, feeling frustrated with your attorney client relationship makes that worse. My commitment to client well being will help overcome any of those obstacles.
